    I think you can both tango and cha cha to Lady GaGa's Bad Romance

    Tempo-wise, cha cha and tango have very similar, if not identical speeds. It all depends on the beat.

    A tango Bad Romance might need a little altering/live playing/arranging to make the beat stronger.

    Good one! I've never even thought of that as cha...

    I danced a group tango-chacha to Dance With Me (Debelah Morgan), what feels like eons ago. Various versions of Sway With Me could also work. Any tango with strong percussion could probably work as a cha cha. I also recall hearing some tango remixes that were done as chacha, though don't know names. If you have any editing skills, you could possibly find both versions of such a song, and find a good point to transition from one to the next.

    What about Duffy's song Mercy? I'd have to listen to it for tango and cha, but know you can do a whole lot of songs to it.

    You can try looking at
    "Die Another Day" Madonna
    "Disturbia" Rhianna
    "Let it Rock" Kevin Rudolf
    "The Way I Are" Timbaland

    Good luck!
